Yes as Bob suggested bring a book, magazines, or something to help pass the time. It's an easy infusion, and most centers really make you feel welcome. Mine offers snacks, etc., and the warm blankets are heavenly! I always end up taking a nap as I schedule them at the end of the day and I'm sleepy. Another thing; my doc ordered up Tylenol and Benedryl as pre-meds. The Tylenol I still take, but I switched to Claritin because the Benedryl was making me too sleepy to drive home. I've had three infusions using the Claritin, and it's been really wonderful.
Remicade - will have my 20th infusion on February 21.
